    To be honest, I have been wondering about this for a while – pondering if the Yankees would make this move. It seems to make sense for both parties. But, if the Yankees are smart, they will limit Rivera to D.H. as much as possible. He’s a dog in the field. And, he’s a bit of a turd on the bases too.

    Low risk, given the contract. And, I would not be shocked if he made the team.

      Yawn.

      Seems like he always did better against us than for us.

      I continue to ask… Are we better than last year?

      I continue to answer… No. But maybe we aren’t much worse.

      Maybe not worse. It is basically the same team – minus Swisher and Martin. A-Rod wasn’t around a lot last year too. But, I am not sure that the starting rotation will be as good as it was last year. And, if Mo gets hurt, you will not have Soriano as a fall back this season.

      In any event, part of it is not just the Yankees. The Jays are better. The Rays may be better – and they were pretty good last year. If the Orioles can play well again, the Yankees – and the Red Sox – may not know how to live in a division where you can’t beat up on your neighbors 40 to 60 times a year (like in the old days).

      Another spitball thrown at the ceiling.

      I’ll believe it when I see it. Remember, there was a lot of chirping about the Red Sox in 2011. Several pitchers of beer, and plates of fried chicken later…

      Then again, I didn’t see the O’s and A’s doing as well as they would’ve done in 2012 either. :|
